That's such a good point. I think most of us are too hard on ourselves, and that seems to be the case even more when we are depressed. You're also right about
practicing what we preach.....a lot of us are better at dishing out the positive advice than we are listening to our own advice...lol. Human nature, perhaps, but your point is a valid one! Positive self-talk does work! Glad you brought this up.
"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
